I trust everyone enjoyed a fantastic Orlando Hamcation and ARRL National Convention this past weekend. I know Terri and I did.

February’s Program: K1N You have heard about it, possibly worked them and certainly wondered just how did they do it! Come to this month’s meeting and all will be revealed! Through the kindness of Al, N3EA, we will be showing the NEW video of the Navassa Island Dxpedition. This promises to be a fantastic, enjoyable program (bring your own popcorn).
